[bottle @ RBESG 2009, Grand Tasting] Nice sour and complex aroma with strawberry and celery and other lambicky things. Cloudy orange with a rocky white head. Dry and sour flavour with plenty of fresh fruit, including orange and lemon. Complex. Light body, elevated carbonation, sour finish.

deflagro (106) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange liquid. Musty, a bit earty and vineous aroma with a distinct acidity. Taste is round and dry with some yeast, a lot of funk and some fruitiness. Unfortunately a rather short finish. Still a really nice gueuze.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle. SB&WF. Beautiful pale orange colour with fluffy white head. Citrusy sorbet tart and wood in aroma. Earthy flavour with light gastric juice along with gentle acidity but still loaded with funkiness. Really nice mouthfeel with fluffy, porous feeling from the gentle natural carbonation. Bit bitter in the end.

Orangish pour. White head. Lots of cheese and wood in the nose with some fruit and tons of sour funk. Flavor is sour, lemony, cheesy and a bit of sweetness mixed in. Nice brew. Glad to try this one for sure.
